Almost as nice as the Maldives, that’s the general opinion among divers. Understandable, it is in fact great to dive in waters warmer than 30° C, choosing among a huge variety of diving-sites and having the great opportunity to meet here and there a hungry shark.
Courses are offered all around the island in one of the numerous diving-centers (most of them inside the hotels, but accessible to non-residents as well). Depending on the diving-center, courses in PADI, CMAS or NAUI are offered.
Some of the nicest diving-sites:
the wrecks of the,’Silver Star’,’Stella Maru’ and ,’Hassan Mia’ in the north
